 Skills Lab Course

Course Description
Skills Lab intends to help clinicians practice as SAFE examiners in New York State. In order to become a NYS Certified SAFE Examiner, healthcare providers must complete the NYS DOH didactic course as well as a supervised "preceptorship" experience.  
 
The Skills Lab is an excellent way for SAFEs to refresh their skills and knowledge base.  

This training session combines the knowledge and expertise of a Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner certified by the NYS Department of Health and the International Forensic Nurse Association with an experienced Clinical Social Worker.   

Who Should Take? 
SAFEs who have successfully completed 40-hour introductory course.  
 
Objectives
Upon the successful completion of this training session, examiners will be able to:
  • Demonstrate evidence collection techniques as required in the protocol for the Acute Care of the Adult Patient Reporting a Sexual Assault.
  • Demonstrate interviewing techniques for obtaining medical forensic history
  • Demonstrate appropriate and objective medical record documentation, including documentation of injuries
  • Demonstrate the ability to provide patient education about medical follow-up, medications, and specialized equipment
  • Identify and discuss the need for utilizing the Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault Kit  
  • Submit paperwork to NYS DOH for SAFE certification
 
Date/Time: Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Course fee: $100
